TOPIC: private ip address

private ip address 10 years 9 months ago #25283

hi,

A while ago I wanted to check how secure my network is, and I came across the following site:
http://www.auditmypc.com/

now, I passed the firewall check, but not the anonymous check

it turned out that the site knew my private ip, although I'm behind a nat router

can anyone tell me how this can happen?

thx

My guess is that your browser also sends your internal address towards the site, or it is given by some sort of Client-side scripting.

If you use a proxy-server it will probably be covered by the proxy in this case because the proxy is browsing for itself (making the request and so on)

The package arriving at your destination is indeed covered by NAT so the 'Source IP' is your external IP.

*edit*
After using a proxy on this side my internal ip was hidden.

With a quick search on google I came on the "HTTP_X_FORWARDED_FOR "
header, it seems this is the one why they can see your private ip-address
